Report: Free-to-Play Titanfall Battle Royale Game, Apex Legends, Will Release Tomorrow

Titanfall battle royale rumored to launch soon, minus the Titans

Rumors have been swirling online this weekend that Respawn Entertainment has secretly invited some streamers and YouTubers to check out its free-to-play hero battle royale game, Apex Legends. While it sounds like it's set in the Titanfall universe, it won't star any Titans. According to an anonymous source that spoke with Kotaku, "it plays like Titanfall mixed with Overwatch and Blackout from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4".

Said to be titled "Apex Legends", this new Titanfall game will be one that's based on battle royale! Like other online competitive games, think Fortnite, Overwatch, etcetera, the game will include cosmetic items and in-game content through loot boxes and transactions.

LeBron returns after missing 17 games
The superstar almost recorded a triple-double as he scored 24 points, recorded 14 rebounds, and dished out nine assists. The Lakers (26-25) have lost 11 of 17 games without their lone All-Star and have dropped four of their last five.

The game will apparently support up to a maximum of 60 players per server with three players max per team, and will feature character classes with unique abilities. Apex Legends will supposedly feature microtransactions, though how invasive they are remains to be seen once the game launches. Even if the rumors are untrue, EA is certainly doing something with the name "Apex Legends".

Supposedly, Apex Legends will actually be running on a heavily modified version of Valve's Source Engine.
